Children’s Christmas Party

What’s it all about?

KidzWish hosts 4,300 children and carers at its Children’s Christmas Party each November. Each child that attends receives a free gift from Santa to remember the day, McDonald’s Happy Meal for lunch, an ice-cream for dessert and a gift bag with all the essentials: chocolate, chips, cookies and a light-up toy.

If you have a child who is sick, disadvantaged or has a disability, we encourage you to apply. Registrations are now open.

Thousands of Illawarra & South Coast children and their carers look forward to the event each year and when it arrives spirits run high. KidzWish make every effort to provide an enjoyable experience for all children present so they can experience an early taste of the Christmas spirit.

Reminder that tickets are issued in a first come, first served basis.


Illawarra & South Coast children who are sick, disadvantaged or have a disability and their carers.
